Shonda Rhimes is the creative mind behind "Grey's Anatomy", "Scandal", "Private Practice", and "How To Get Away with Murder".
She was challenged when her sister muttered six words - "You never say yes to anything". With this in mind, Shonda said yes to Dartmouth's commencement speech, yes to being interviewed by Oprah, yes to health, and yes to the freedom of play. She also write about how saying goodbye to the character Cristina Yang was so difficult.
I liked Rhimes’ premise, the attitude that one’s life expands with new capabilities and personal growth by saying Yes to things that scare us. I admired her writing style – confiding, witty/funny, attention-catching images. In listening to the audio version I got distracted by the tone of her vocal inflection (that I may have misinterpreted) and heard self-glorification in the frequent repetition of her stellar accomplishments. It’s an entertaining memoir firstly, and a motivational help, secondly, by her personal example.
I loved hearing the author read her story and how she was able to change her life around. Great read when you are looking for some inspiration for positive change to come your way.
Like sitting and talking with your best friend.
Brilliant. Loved it!!!
This was so positive, feel-good, funny, and lovely! I love Shonda Rimes and will watch anything she puts out!
I really enjoyed listening to Shonda describe her Year of Yes. Her story centers around lessons she's learned about accepting herself and getting more out of life. While listening, it hit me how much of Olivia's voice (from Scandal) is Shonda. I don't think I would have enjoyed reading it as much as I did listening.
I thought Shonda Rhimes' story was inspiring and authentic. I loved the audiobook and listening to her tell me her own story.
I purposely checked out the author reading her audiobook version. Glad I did not check out the book. Not impressed and I was kind of disappointed. And I am not a hater. Kudos to Her Highness, Queen of ShondaLand, the self proclaimed, "Badass." I was a faithful GA fan for years, so-so with Scandal, nothing for Private Practice and HTGAWM from time to time. Worth a browse, not a read.
